  1. Ok - so what are the 3 then?
  2. Any idea of price point for the Mask?
  3. Maybe, but the boy has used the Extreme steel for years. He’s just used to them. He just doesn’t want to lose the height. That’s what I’m asking about. I can find the steel, that’s not the issue.
  4. Did you go to the 1X or 2X? Are the 2S skates similar in height?
  5. Compare stock 2S Pro’s vs NXG/One.100 skates with Step Steel Extreme. Similar in height?
  6. I’d get step steel for an older pair with vortexx cowling. how would that compare to, say, stock 2S pro’s?
  7. My son needs larger skates. He’s 5’8’, 125lbs and playing elite level hockey. He’s worn Bauer NXG skates with Step Steel Extreme blades since he was under 5’. ive heard that more modern skates rival the Step Steel in night based on the holder design. My son wants all the height he can get. Am I best off looking for a used set of NXGs with SSExtreme blades, or are modern Bauer’s going to give him comparable height? Anyone know? Any help is really appreciated.
  8. I love the set Dennis did for me.
  9. Of Monster ripped you off, file a complaint with the PA attorney general’s office.

    Tucker Tydan injury

    The update said his artery was not cut but that his quad was completely severed. I don’t think regular hockey socks would have done anything for this injury. The skate cut him above his pads. You’d have to be wearing cut proof long johns - and that would be really really hot over the course of a game/season.
  11. The 20-day reply period for the Laums has passed. Anyone know if they bothered to reply or put up a defense? I still assume they just declare bankruptcy and skate on all of this. I hope I’m wrong.
  12. Any civil action is a waste of time. Jeff will just declare bankruptcy and that’s the end of that. What will stick is a criminal probe. I’m sure I’ll never get my money back, so I want to know that guy spends a little time in the poke for what he did.
  13. Jeff took money - a lot of money - and ran away. That’s theft. That’s fraud. How is he not in jail?
  14. Minus the stitching, which causes friction.
  15. When I compared pricing, I didn’t think Dennis charged too much. I got 100% custom pads for about 10% more than a nice set of Brian’s pads right off the showroom floor. To me, that’s a good value.
  16. Talked to Dennis a fair bit about sliding. He uses a certain material to help with that. Also, the single sliding surface helps with efficient use of power. When I used his demo pads, I get like I could slide much better than with my Brian’s.
  17. I was really surprised how light the whole set was. I picked up the box the set came in with one hand. It was amazing. I also did a demo test of a Proto set with no rolls. I didn’t even notice they were gone. What I did notice was better rebound control and no funky bounces from shots hitting the rolls on the fly. That was great. I’ll try to post some photos of these in action as soon as I get them on the ice. Also, Dennis was great to work with. He delivered my pads exactly when he said he would.
  18. My new Factory Mad setup arrived from Dennis today. What think you?
  19. I can’t stop watching these videos. Amazing. Some parts of the goalie game have changed a lot. Some not at all.
  20. What a surprise, the product from Monster didn’t hold up. Shocker.
  21. Again, we generally don’t like Warrior gear because we also have struggled with durability, but the double goalie jock seems to be an exception. It has held up well. We recently bought a replacement after 2 solid seasons, but we bought the same jock. Replacement was only because it was time, not because of any issues. The Warrior double goalie jock is a tank and the design makes a lot of sense.
  22. You should add some duct tape to the inside of the foam where the Velcro is cut in or else that area will start to tear.
